i tried looking it up but couldnt really find anyone talking about this tank on here.

yesterday i got the event orb and pulled the Lycan. so far it seems good in the event mode, seems to have great armor and great gun depression. it has basically the IS's gun. the mobility seems pretty poor since its rather slow even in the event mode.

 

so far it seems like a better IS.

 

what do you think of this tank?

Its a very good tank, with a good mix of gd and armor. The gun is solid and the mobility is decent for a heavy. Its quite good for killing annilators too.

I got it from a snow globe too... The only tank that i didn't want...

 

So far it feels like a cool looking IS but all those annihilators and smashers make it pretty weak imo.

Another ridiculous abomination of a tank that should never have been added.

All the funny Hybrid fake premium tanks kinda ruin the tanks.  Most of them are concepts that never would've even existed, adding a whole new style that should have never existed.  Plus, they look stupid.  It would've been so much better if they added prototype tanks, or new TT countries, or something even SORTA realistic

I don't know why but I always get this tank confused with the Lupus.

It's in Tier 7. Any tank in Tier 7 that is not OP right now is not worth playing unless you like burning WR. (I'm kidding obviously).

ya, annihilators can ruin your day, if you are good at making them bounce they can be killed with this tank atleast.

ya, smashers on the other hand can easily remove like 800 HP from you...

imo i like tanks like this. i dont really care for historical realism in a arcade game. i think tank history should be 100% true, but how tanks play or stuff like that can be fictional.

i would rather have these tanks than artillery. i also do not understand everyone wanting it to be real tanks only,  i think fantasy tanks add to the game as long as they have a basis in reality, like the Lycan is a tank that could of happened. if the tank is outrageously unrealistic, then i am with you. but if its a realistic design then i think its fine.

ya, a platoon of smashers or annihilators will rip you apart in seconds in any tier 7 tank and some tier 8 tanks.

i know this due to that happening to me :D

 

thank you all for your thoughts :)

The Lycan is not a tank that could have happened outside of a TV show. It literally looks like a tank created by the Werewolves from Twilight.

 

I hang out in tier X to avoid these eyesores altogether. Everything up there at least pretends to have been written on some engineers cocktail napkin.

but its hull style fits with russian high tiers? the turret looks similar to either a Swedish or a French turret too. its a pretty realistic tank design in terms of functionality. it has a strong sleek turret and it has a heavily agled pike nose. the treads would look much more normal if they had side skirts or something over them.

 

the tank is realistic in design and is visually similar to other tanks that did exist. (in terms of armor design)

I meant to say that it IS a tank created by magical werewolves. Like, that's the canon. A magical folio enhanced the tank so that the internal modules can't break. 

 

You can say the Drac looks like the AMX CDC, but it's still a Vampire tank. I'm not saying they don't look like tanks, they just wouldn't have happened because they required literal magic to manifest. The idea that "the Lycan has basis in reality" because it has a hodgepodge of tank features is silly. They could have just made it a box with a turret and itd be similarly "based in reality", because the T1 Heavy actually existed.
